The Doom 2 Variations


Published April 29, 2009


The Doom 2 Variations - A Tribute to Bobby Prince -

- A re-creation of the Doom 2 Videogame soundtrack, with some minor variations in the basic song arrangements, instruments, etc. These songs are all basically created from the original MIDI files that are easily available just about anywhere you search on the Internet. However, due to re-formatting from the game, the notes are no longer properly "sync-ed" to any proper "beats-per-minute" tempo setting, so I really had to do some serious editing and re-arranging of the notes to get them synced properly.

- I also used more modern sounding drum samples and orchestral instrument samples for a more realistic sound.

- And I took some serious "liberties" with the basic arrangements and added some guitar solos or weird guitars and effects over the more static and repetitive parts that I thought just needed "more".

- Beyond that, the tracks are basically what you would hear in the original Doom 2 game. If anyone knows how to embed mp3s into a game setup mod, please feel free to add my versions of these songs to your current game mods.

Please also note that I do not claim any ownership of these songs. That honor belongs the the original composer, the very talented Bobby Prince. I merely re-arranged and re-performed the material that was already there. These songs are good because of Mr. Prince's skills. Thank you very much Bobby.
